The first big movie of the Dussera season has arrived, and it has done what it is supposed to do, open big. The Young Tiger NTR starrer Jai Lava Kusa has taken the fourth best opening of the year and the sixth best opening of all time. Because it has done so much, post the GST taxes, it is a sensational achievement.
The opening day number of Jai Lava Kusa is around 20.5 Cr. It is just above Janatha Garage making it the biggest opener in the career of Tarak. The film had a field day at the box office as it got the best release possible with hype in place due to the triple role act. It could have done a bit more, but that is average to above average so far.
Jai Lava Kusa First Week – Very Good
The first week collections of Jai Lava Kusa are around 45 Cr in Telugu states and 60 Cr worldwide. It is similar to Young Tiger NTR’s last film Janatha Garage. The collections are fine, but nothing spectacular. After a sensational opening day, the numbers have been pretty average.
The first week is still very good as the movie is showing decent trending in the holidays. It has worked to the advantage of Jai Lava Kusa. The final range of the film will be decided how it behaves once the holidays are over. So far, the indication points towards an average run at best.
Jai Lava Kusa Total Collections
The total collections of Jai Lava Kusa are around 70 Cr. After a fabulous opening and good opening week, the film has struggled to hold at the box office. It has had an average run post the completion of the first week.
The GST is talked about big time for the effect in total numbers, and it is true. However, it will be the same for all the big movies going forward. We already have other films also getting effected similarly which is how it is for everyone.
Jr NTR now has two back to back 70 Cr share movies in Janatha Garage and Jai Lava Kusa. He is the only Telugu star at the moment to hold the unique feat. With a potential Trivikram Srinivas movie lined up ahead, he would be waiting to score a hat-trick.
